Data set update: Terra MODIS processing has resumed

Collection 6.1 Terra forward processing has resumed at MODAPS as of 12/16/2022, following an update to the geolocation code to relax the "orbit tolerance" limit that is imposed on MODIS geolocation data generation. This became necessary, following certain changes in the Terra orbit configurations, after the last two set of Terra Constellation Exit Maneuvers (CEMs) carried out in October, 2022. All Collection 6.1 Terra and combined product generation should now be back to nominal status. A similar geolocation code update is expected for Collection 6 early next week.
